In this report, first beam test results for a real size RE2-2 prototype RPC for the forward region of the CERN CMS are presented. The beam test for the prototype RPC was performed at the Gamma Irradiation Facility (GIF) in CERN with a particle rate ranging up to approximately 700 Hz/cm2. These test results demonstrate that a real size RE2-2 RPC can be built with relatively low resistivity of bakelite (approximately 1010 Ωcm). The current design of the RPC can be an option for the CMS forward region with its good efficiency and time characteristics under high radiation environment.
